      Ok, I am going to point out, having seen RSd (also called CRPS) its far from psychological, its a vascular, and nervous system disorder and far from well understood. anyone who calls it other than physical has likely never seen it or dealt with it personally.
      I have Fibromyalgia, caused by early onset arthritis and stage one CRPS. Its a compound of trauma to both feet (Stage 1 CRPS) a rotator cuff tear in one shoulder and some broken bone in my back that never healed right. I do have epilepsy and a psychiatric disorder. So how do I deal with this? I treat it like everything else, I eat extra healthy, quit smoking, try hard to cut back on "inflammatory foods" I diffuse therapeutic grade essential oils, I've had some surgery to remove bone spurs and shattered bones. I take a carefully titrated regimen of a couple of psychiatric medications, an epileptic medication, and a muscle relaxant. All of which have pain relief and mood control properties. Like everything, if I let my mood disorder get out of control it can put me in the hospital, and I have tried no medicine but that does not work and i always end up back in the hospital. Since I can trace mood disorders back 3 generations on each side (to great grandparents male and female) grandparents and my parents and my brothers and sisters have them and some cousins. I believe this to be genetic. My mother, her sisters and my grandmother all had early arthritis and some other problems as well,. I regularly exercise by walking slowly if need be. So far there is no magic pill, just small differences here and there.

          I want to thank everyone who has voted in the poll so far. It honestly gives me an appreciation for the variation that this forum consists of.

            I think I will keep this one to myself due to the commonness of attitudes such as this: http://www.theologyweb.com/campus/sh...l=1#post210145

                  I think those who have social issues (autism spectrum, social anxiety, phobias) tend to frequent internet forums in general. It gives them a way to interact with people in a non-threatening way. Not just theologyweb. Also a lot of people are unable to go out in public much, if at all due to illness, physical disorders, etc.

                    Some interesting points Sparko. Never thought of it that way.

                          I have mild, infrequent epilepsy. It's not nearly as bad as it used to be, which is something.

                            Homosexual male which is said to be more vulnerable to mental illness than normal males. Clinical depression which recently lightened up after a year of ECT, really terrible social anxiety disorder and just general anxiety. For the past few years I've been more psychologically healthy than I was for most of my life, but I'm still pretty bad. I have to work alone and at night at a job that is below my skill level, I have 0 friends off the internet, and I really only leave my room for shopping and the occasional movie.

                                I'm not sure if a fear of running outta bacon is considered a legit disorder

                                I'm always still in trouble again
